Subject: The ORIGINAL King Solomon's Mines Is A Masterpiece
Indiana Jones?

King Solomon's Mines has nothing whatsoever to do with Indiana Jones, except possibly as some kind of inspiration for it.

The remakes with Richard Chamberlain were indeed a total waste of time.

I made the terrible mistake of watching the remake, and that is 2 hours of my life I can never get back.

A sequel to the remake was made called "Alan Quartermain & The Lost City Of Gold" which sucked holy ass. Even more so than the remake of KSM.

That said, the original with Stweart Granger & Deborah Kerr was a masterpiece, and anyone who wants to see quality adventure films of the Golden Age Of Hollywood should see it.

Deborah Kerr looks SMOKING hott in this trailer for this edition of King SolomonÂs Mines. This was said to be filmed in Africa, however, I am not really to sure how AFRICAN this thing REALLY is. You know what I mean? Anyways, this looks failry typical for a jungle adventureÂ

The picture offers Deborah Kerr and Stewart Grainger, but the real star is African native Umbopa, the Watusi guide and servant who turns out to be a king (this role was played by Paul Robeson in the earlier black-and-white version). The colonial overtones will enrage some modern viewers, but the most compelling reasons to watch this movie are the jungle sequences, the native dances and the colorful native fabrics, rendered in Technicolor. The stampede scenes are truly stunning; in one case an elephant tramples a man to death.

No matter how maudlin you might think the background love story is, the jungle scenes will have your heart pounding. The film was remade, ineptly, as part of the Indiana Jones series. Richard Chamberlain and a very one-dimensional Sharon Stone starred in that waste of time.

This trailer does an admirable job of showcasing the film and thus deserves a high rating.
